How stable are the necks on the SX basses? I've thought about picking one up to play around with, but the price point always scares me a little.
I've had 3 that I've played with so far (all P bass styles). I am no luthier or Instrument tech but I used the SX's to learn and get used to doing a whole bunch of things that I would never have been game to attempt on my more expensive basses. Neck setups, nuts, truss rod adjustment etc.
2 of them were very stable and solid, quite easy with a little practice to get right. The 3rd had quite a ropey neck and was really good for learning how to get my saddle height/neck tension/action all balanced etc. Once I had it dialed in, it has remained stable since and plays nicely.
These 3 necks feel way too good for the price to be honest. Almost makes you feel guilty for enjoying it so much.
